Do you wait until the night before to study for a test or wait until the last minute to complete an assignment or just struggle to get your homework done? I’ve worked with students who are looking for help tackling and organizing school work.

My approach is to keep homework strategies simple. I will work with you in a way that you are comfortable. It is my job to help you find your comfort zone. I would love the opportunity to show you how important and effective it is to self-manage, not time manage.

I am not a teacher in a school; I am a business coach with 20 years experience. The work that I do with managers, executives and entrepreneurs, helping them become more effective with their time and more organized in their approach to work, transcend to students. I work with students from elementary and up.

Here are some testimonials I would like to share that help demonstrate some of my experiences:

“I want to tell you how much you helped Jeita. She was the typical hurried child with athletics, homework and social life. She was a chronic over scheduler. She learned how to look at her schedule and provide time for what she needed to accomplish. You are the best!”

“My feisty 8th grade daughter took away the concepts and value of planning with a calendar and 'GPS' – goals, planning and scheduling. I was so thrilled when she used the planning techniques she had just learned and finished her project calmly a day early - without any of the usual night-before-rush! She was thrilled because she got a 110% on her Romeo and Juliet project!”

As a professional speaker, trainer, writer, coach and entrepreneur, I have a breadth of experience that I can share with you.

My areas of focus include: organizing and study skills, presentation skills, writing, marketing and career development. I will help you plan short and long term assignments effectively, prioritize and develop “real world” organizational skills that you will be able to use throughout your life.

I look forward to working with you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Career Development

As a student, you may not know what you want to “be” when you grow up. That is OK. I would love the opportunity to help you think about your goals and create a tangible action plan to make them a reality. I can work with you as you weigh potential options and develop skills that will make you successful as you begin an important look at your future.

Career development may sound a little scary and overwhelming but in fact, it is one step in a very exciting journey. As a business coach with over 20 years of experience, I’ve helped clients look at the path they want to pursue, guiding them through job and careers changes.

I have also been at the forefront of hiring new employees and see the unfortunate yet avoidable mistakes candidates make. I will help you make a memorable impression through cover letter, resume, telephone and face-to-face interviews.

Marketing

When I started my company 20 years ago, I had no idea that I would have to market my business. Quickly I realized how essential marketing would become as I put together a strategy to build a successful organization.

Through the years, I have integrated many different marketing approaches to growing my client base. As an entrepreneur one of the joys I have is sharing “how to…” to help others. I continue to have successes while having learned from my mistakes along the way. And I am still learning. My business is a work-in-progress and I’d love to share my marketing knowledge and experiences with you.

Public Speaking

Did you know that speaking into a microphone doesn’t mean you will be heard? You need to be able to breathe from your diaphragm to have your voice carry (with or without a microphone).

As a professional speaker with over 20 years of experience presenting at conferences and associations and an amateur musical comedy performer, I know firsthand the importance of communicating effectively to impact an audience.

My approach is practical. We will work on presentations that you are working on, looking at your writing and delivery. I will work with you to sharpen your presentation skills by helping you present your message with clarity and confidence.

One of the greatest fears people have is public speaking. One of the greatest skills that impact success is being able to get up in front of a group of people, no matter the size and communicate effectively and with assurance.

I would love the opportunity to help you develop your talent in this area.

Study Skills

Developing good organizational skills to approach school work will positively impact you for the rest of your life. I will introduce you to the necessary skills and tools to organize and integrate daily homework, school projects, and outside activities. Developing these good habits and techniques help reduce stress that can result from procrastinating, rushing to get done with homework, and leaving school projects until the night before they are due.

As a business coach with over 20 years of experience, I’ve worked with students (middle school and up), executives, managers, and entrepreneurs helping them with goals, planning and scheduling including learning how to start a project, create a realistic action plan and incorporating the "to do’s" into a daily plan. My approach is very experiential, meaning, we will work on your actual homework and school projects to build a framework of practical steps toward better organization.
